Constitution in the Classroom

The National Constitution Center brings innovative teaching tools to your classroom. Our unique approach to constitutional education emphasizes historic storytelling, constitutional rather than political questions, and the habits of civil dialogue and reflection.

Online Classes for Students Nationwide

The National Constitution Center is here to support remote learning with free lectures and civil dialogue sessions on the Constitution that students across America can access online, and accessible on a home computer, laptop, or phone. Join us as we expand the Classroom Exchanges to go well beyond the traditional classroom to connect students to constitutional scholars and each other for thoughtful civil dialogue around constitutional issues that matter to them.

Watch a sample session: 

  • Open Source (Public) Sessions
